It's official for next year. I, the assistant DH, will be taking over shipping of awards on Gene's request.
This means that the winners of next year's contest should have their trophies, plaques, whatever in their hands within a month after AMA ends (although I'm gonna shoot for something closer to 2-3 weeks). That is unless something happens with the con budget for our department which is unlikely. Furthermore, I promise you will receive expedient, if not immediate, response from me concerning this matter if you have any questions.
Of course, we prefer you be present to accept your award as your winning video plays during the ceremonies.
